ANAVI Technology Light Controllers

ANAVI Technology Light Controllers are open-source hardware Wi-Fi® devices for controlling a 12V RGB LED strip. These controllers support light, temperature, humidity, and gesture recognition sensors. The devices also fully comply with the popular open-source platform, Home Assistant. When paired with Amazon Alexa, voice commands can turn the controllers on and off. The devices communicate using the lightweight messaging protocol (MQTT). The controller combines open-source hardware with free and open-source software.
